Most people face a chipped tooth due to accidents, injuries, grinding teeth while sleeping, and through a multitude of other situations. A chipped tooth may cause health issues that require an immediate solution. Beyond simply restoring the look of the tooth, it is often necessary to restore the broken tooth so it does not cause further damage.
A dentist will help replace a chipped tooth with certain types of materials for ensuring optimal results. A wide range of options is available for those who need to fix a chipped tooth.
How a dentist fixes a chipped tooth?
Your dentist will recommend effective treatments for a chipped tooth using the most advanced technologies offered today. The type of treatment will depend on the nature of the chipped tooth. When making the decision on which treatment is best, the factor that are taken into account are; which tooth is chipped, how big the chip is, the condition of the surrounding teeth, and more.
Here is a list of the possible treatments for fixing your chipped tooth:
Dental bonding is one of the quickest ways that can help to restore chipped teeth with high success rates. It involves applying a small amount of teeth-colored resin to cracked areas and then bonding the same with a dental curing light for solidifying the material. This method is an ideal one for those who have a small chip in their tooth. Read more about dental bonding.
A crown is like a type of cap that acts more like a cover over cracked or chipped tooth. Crowns restore the size, functions, and shape of a tooth to its natural state. Dental crowns are a perfect choice for replacing a large portion of a missing tooth. They are usually made from porcelain or enamel-like materials that fit over the prepared tooth structure. Your dentist will cement the crown over the affected area, which ultimately restores the functions of a tooth. The primary advantage of a dental crown is that it makes feasible ways for ensuring more protection against decaying, damages, and other issues. Read more about dental crowns.
A veneer is the best option for covering the front surface of teeth with porcelain materials that can help to experience a natural look. In most cases, your dentist will place a temporary veneer after taking an impression of a tooth. Then, once the permanent veneer has been made, the temporary veneer will be replaced.
